Tribute to late son too personal for Detox

Dr. Dre is preparing to release his long-awaited third disc later this year, the follow-up to his 1999 album, 2001, which featured The Message, a track dedicated to his deceased brother. It was speculated that Dre would record a similar tune in memory of his second son Andre Young, Jr., who suffered a fatal drug overdose in August 2008, aged 20.

Dr. Dre admits he has recorded some music for his tragic child but fears it is too personal to add to the tracklisting for Detox.

“I’m actually back and forth about that. I’m leaning towards no because I don’t know if I want to put myself or my family through that. I kind of want the record to stay fun. Right now as we speak, I’m leaning towards a no. Though I do have a couple of things that I’ve done (for him).”

    Who the fuck are you to tell The Mighty D.R.E. what to do? If he releases it, he releases it. If he doesn’t, then I’m sure you’ll understand. And do you think Dr. Dre needs your ideas for beats?

    I know this is old and all and You don’t need advice from a white boy and all but If I may add my opinion, I think you should as well, It is the real personal heart to heart songs that make Eminem and Tupac Great artists. I love the fact that you are putting your self’s out there showing that you are real people with real problems, trials and tribulations just like everyone else
